I find myself doing this repeatedly out of habit and wonder if I'm not the only one.

This isn't necessarily a bad idea, but aren't you used to forms from other websites? No website has you fill out a form and then hit Ctrl+s to submit it –  Michael Mrozek Aug 9 '11 at 2:19

So switch to a text editor for composing your posts... –  Cody Gray Aug 9 '11 at 10:42
    
Of course I'm use to forms on other websites, but this site wouldn't be as successful as it is by being just like "other websites". The main place I think it makes sense is when you're editing content "in-place" like when you edit a post or comment and it's not a separate form, it just turns to a field. I think it's very intuitive and would resurrect an essentially useless key combo. –  jondavidjohn Aug 9 '11 at 14:06

While ⌘S isn't a key combo that I hit very often when using my browser, I am strongly opposed to a web site taking over standard keyboard commands. ⌘L, ⌘Q, ⌘O, ⌘H, ⌘R, ⌘S -- these (and really anything (on the Mac) using the command key) should be used to control the browser, not the site.

I do see your point, and in general I agree with you, but the "save" combo is all but useless in a browser context, Google Docs does this with great convenience in my opinion. –  jondavidjohn Aug 9 '11 at 14:05
